After that performance

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I didn't get to watch the game today, but reading about it left a bad taste in my mouth. So I just licked the envelopes on all our Christmas cards. No joke....

Don't worry pal, I can sum it up for you

ATL had 16 sacks so far on the season, they had 5 against us today

Offense scored 7 points in 3 and a half quarters

Jimmy Graham getting paid nearly 10 mil to drop crucial third down passes and get tackled by cornerbacks that are barely 5" 9 and 175 pounds at best

Graham caught a ball at the goal line, appeared to cross the goal line and then falcons stripped it, refs ruled it a fumble because Graham's arms blocked the view of the ball on the replay

Defense gives the ball back to offense with a chance to win the game in a 2 minute drill

Guess what happens? Same thing that's happened all year, Brees throws a pick in the dying moments.

Total yuck. Bring back the gold pants. Or the throwbacks. Or pink lingerie. Anything to change this Superdome jinx.

Re: After that performance

Once again, and like every single other loss this season, it was more about ur LACK of performance than what the opposition did.

Bad year. Make changes. Things can be fine.

What would make you think he is pi$$ed? The Dome was sold out, all year, and pretty much already sold out for next year. Most people sent in their invoices and already paid for playoff tickets that aren't going to happen, which then roll over into next year. Benson is rolling in the dough tonight, counting his receipts. Not sure what the reason is anything would change.

Re: After that performance

It will be a long off season. I'm not glad it's over. I'll miss watching the Saints on Sunday. No matter how Great or how bad they are. I see a lot of changes coming this business season, bet we will be better next year. It was a tough year. Let's get over it and move on.


Here's to next year!!!!

Too many "reaches" and "projects" and "raw talent" in the draft classes on this team. Need some solid talent players from big time programs that know how to create football players, and who can come right in and contribute.

They say we lost our "leadership" on defense -- Harper, Vilma, Will Smith, Sedrick Ellis -- every single one of those guys was from a BIG school program, not from Samford or the University of Rangoon. These bargain basement, grab bag players are not going to get it done on defense.

Baptiste came from Nebraska. Vacarro came from Texas. Jenkins came from Georgia. Big schools.
